Trump is continuing a trend; his leading candidate for the extremely important position of Secretary of State is another billionaire who is completely unqualified for the job.
Rex Tillerson is the CEO of the Exxon Mobil Corporation.
If the truth were told, he is the head of one of the most corrupt and harmful companies in the world. Big oil lies daily as they destroy the environment. The world already has more oil and gas than it can use, but he is lobbying for additional permits to create fracking wells everywhere, including our national parks, our pristine wilderness, and off of the shores of our beautiful beaches.
It has been reported that failed and former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, has removed himself from consideration. Could this be because, unlike the president, cabinet members must produce their tax returns? Giuliani has been under investigations for taking money from alleged terrorists in Iran.
Here’s the truth; Trump is surrounding himself with Wall Street capitalists, failed generals, failed politicians, and now an oil magnate. It doesn’t appear that he’s “draining the swamp,” he’s simply creating a cesspool.
The truth is that Trump is ‘handing out candy;’ he is repaying those who supported him during his campaign. At the same time he is punishing America. He is giving power to men and women with no experience, and no talent, who will destroy much of what makes America a good country.
Trump and Senate Majority Leader, and disgusting human being, Mitch McConnell, have already announced that the first order of business will be to repeal the Affordable Care Act; known as Obamacare. During his campaign, Trump promised to replace it, but “the Turtle” says that a replacement will not come for three years or more. Really?
Will their second action be to replace the stars on “Old Glory” with swastikas?
